Now that I've purchased the software, how do I get started?

Once your purchase has completed, a confirmation will be sent to the email address that you used when purchasing FotoStation. This email will contain your order number and a product key, which will be used to activate your new software. The product key will be a mix of numbers and letters, and will look similar to this: XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX-XXXXXX. 

If you haven't already downloaded and installed FotoStation, just click on DOWNLOAD on our home page to begin the download process. If you've already downloaded and installed FotoStation, you're ready to activate with your product key. 

To launch FotoStation on Mac OS X, open the Finder and goto Applications, then double click on "FotoStation LT". You will now see a window that presents two blue buttons. The first gives you the option to use or continue a 14 day trial, while the second, which says "I Have a License Key" will prompt you for the key from your email. The easiest way to activate is to copy and paste the key into the field provided, although you can also manually enter the key by typing. You will need to type the dash "-" between the sets of characters, and also please keep in mind that the letters are all uppercase, and there is no capital letter "O"...we only use zeros, to avoid confusion between these two characters.

Once you've entered your product key, click the blue Submit button, and the activation process will begin. Clicking Submit will contact the license server via the internet and activate your product. Upon successful activation, you will see a Thank You screen with a blue box in the top right corner (X in the middle) on the X and FotoStation will launch. Now you're on your way! Enjoy your new FotoStation software!
